- All Known Implementing Classes:
@NonNullByDefault public interface TypeThis is a parent interface for all states and commands. It was introduced as many states can be commands at the same time and vice versa. E.g a light can have the state ON or OFF and one can also send ON and OFF as commands to the device. This duality is captured by this marker interface and allows implementing classes to be both state and command at the same time.
